Yoga is at one of the oldest known science of physical and mental self-development that cares for the body with the intelligent guidance of the mind. To practice Yoga, only patience and persistence are the basic requirements.
Some of the most basic objectives are to foster endurance, strength, flexibility, and overall vitality of the body and mind. So if, for example, you want to develop a more limber body, learn to relax, develop self-confidence, increase your flexibility, strength, and balance then Hatha and Raja Yoga may be just what is appropriate for you.
And if you are seeking inspiration, want to break some poor life patterns and are eager to learn gentle and kind approaches to help you reduce stress, improve your sleeping and start feeling better every day, perhaps now is the right time to being or rekindle your interest in learning about Yoga; the richness of its’ philosophy, psychology, physical practice, breathing techniques, one-pointed concentration, flow, and absorption.
It is said, “that when we make room for Yoga in our life, Yoga makes room for us”. In these joyful classes, we are taught that there is no one perfect asana (posture). But rather, through gentle stretching and strengthening, and using different breathing techniques, we are encouraged to explore our own needs, our own bodies, and our own minds and then adapt the movements to our individual uniqueness.
A basic Yoga principle that is always encouraged in the classes is to release competition. And as we learn to let go of the competition both within ourselves and with others, we begin to open up more space to honestly explore our deeper self. To get to know who we are in our essence, to walk the path to inner growth and peace of mind.
And with this discovery, and with an on-going inquiry, we begin to understand more than each asana is a step on the journey of life. The understanding becomes experiential and we can feel it deeply, helping us to feel more empowered and relaxed.
We invite you to join these small and comfortable, restorative classes. Enjoy the movements, the growth, the deep relaxation, and the deep breathing – all of which are remarkable antidotes to stress.
Yoga is for everyone, regardless of background, age, and physical condition.
